important all concerned realised that the newly born country was a geographical monstrosity c r sasikumar Related News How Indira Gandhi initially misunderstood the crisis in East Pakistan It was on March 17 1971 that Indira Gandhi became prime minister for the third consecutive time which was also the first to occur without even a whiff of dissent Exactly eight days later a humongous crisis that had been developing over long years erupted with elemental force in what was then East Pakistan and just nine months later became the republic of Bangladesh On March 25 Sheikh Mujibur Rahman generally called Sheikh Mujib the tallest leader of the Awami League as well as of East Pakistan made a unilateral declaration of Bangladesh’s independence This was the culmination of the struggle of the Bengali-speaking East Pakistani people who constituted a majority of Pakistan’s overall population but were treated by the overwhelmingly Punjabi-dominated military leadership as “second-class” citizens The irony of ironies was that the final parting of ways came when the incredibly crude military ruler General Yahya Khan who had succeeded the first military dictator Field Marshal Ayub Khan (1958-69) denied Sheikh Mujib the office of prime minister that was duly his For Mujib had won a staggering victory in Pakistan’s first elections in December 1970 He had secured a clear majority in the National Assembly even though his party hadn’t contested a single parliamentary seat in West Pakistan In the provincial assembly of East Pakistan he had won 160 seats out of 162 Yahya’s civilian collaborator in this vicious venture was Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto President Ayub’s foreign minister and protégé who had later taken a leading part in the movement to overthrow his mentor His own appetite for power was insatiable He and Yahya believed that they could intimidate Mujib into agreeing to rule only his native land and leave West Pakistan as well as the federal government alone Bhutto summed up the message in four words: “Idhar hum udhar tum (We will rule here and you there)” The notorious Nixon-Kissinger “tilt” towards Yahya and Pakistan had greatly encouraged the dubious duo What happened in March 1971 would have come to pass sometime for reasons that are totally transparent I will briefly mention them presently but let me first mention what happened in New Delhi when the balloon went up in Dacca (now Dhaka) Sadly Gandhi her government and even the country at large were taken by surprise Incredible though it might seem the Indian army did not have even a contingency plan to cope with this eventuality As far back as 1967 a British diplomat Robert Wade Gerry later high commissioner to India had told a closed-door meeting in London that Pakistan’s present “structure” would not last long Two Indians in the audience strategist K Subrahmanyam and historian S Gopal had conveyed this to the appropriate Indian authorities Once Gandhi grasped the gravity of the situation and realised that the Bangladesh crisis would inevitably lead to an influx of refugees first and then war she provided the country with brilliant indeed admirable leadership But as PN Dhar her secretary from 1970 to 1977 admitted in his book Indira Gandhi the ‘Emergency’ and Indian Democracy she and her advisors had earlier misread the signals emanating from Rawalpindi (Islamabad hadn’t been built yet) and Dacca Even on March 25 when Yahya arrived in Dacca Indian policymakers believed that he would perhaps arrive at some kind of compromise with Mujib Only late in the evening did Delhi discover that his real purpose was “diversionary” — to keep Mujib and his colleagues engaged while the army gave finishing touches to its infamous crackdown on the Bengali people To revert to the story beginning with Independence and Partition two things became manifest from the word go First that there was no bond between the two wings of Pakistan except religion Second and more important all concerned realised that the newly born country was a geographical monstrosity as its two wings were separated by a thousand miles of Indian landmass In a memorable phrase Salman Rushdie described Pakistan as “a bird with two wings and no body” Probably even this unviable arrangement could have been made to last longer if the overwhelmingly Punjabi-dominant military and civilian leadership based in the west had not treated the Bengalis with contempt and exploited them in every possible way Even worse was the attempt to foist Urdu on a people deeply in love with their own language The more populous eastern wing was even deprived of the demographic advantage Ayub merged all four western provinces each with its own ethnic identity into “one unit” and decreed that East and West Pakistan would have equal representation in what passed for a national assembly under a constitution written by himself What shattered the defenceless people of East Pakistan was the 1965 war They discovered to their dismay that if they were not occupied by India it was only because Delhi did not want to provoke Beijing into intervening in the India-Pakistan clash of arms Under the circumstances a movement for greater autonomy was bound to start in the eastern wing It was led by Mujib who wrote out a six-point plan In this he conceded to the federal government only foreign affairs and communications Later he agreed to add defence to the federal list but strictly on the condition that each of the two wings would have equal representation in the army Enraged military leaders arrested him immediately and tried him for “treason” To underscore his India connection they called it the Agartala Conspiracy Case Ironically it was Ayub who abruptly released Mujib because he needed the support of all political parties against a powerful and popular upsurge to overthrow him but to no avail He was forced to abdicate But those expecting restoration of democracy were greatly disappointed because martial law returned with a vengeance and that too under Yahya who was given to heavy drinking and a dissolute lifestyle No wonder that on the day of surrender in Dacca

News download Indian Express App More Related NewsUpdated: January 31 2014 9:16 am Related News Chhattisgarh government is unable to accept the right to protest and unwilling to hear the people’s voice By going to town as the Chhattisgarh police and media have recently done on my alleged Maoist links the real questions have been sidelined As citizens of this country do we have the right to protest democratically and constitutionally and as journalists researchers or human rights activists are we free to pursue our vocation The police arrested one Badri Gawde on January 23 and paraded him before the media four days later after his family had filed a missing report Puffy faced and barely able to keep his eyes open Gawde “revealed” to the media that I was working on behalf of the Maoists to oppose the mines and railway line that are to come up in the Raoghat area of the state The activities that my doppelgnger is up to such as leading the Raoghat Rail Sangharsh Samiti in faraway Chhattisgarh even as my mundane self takes classes in Delhi amazes me If only I had that much energy and time Like many young men in conflict areas Gawde is a man of many parts Stylishly dressed and with political ambition Gawde is active both with the Congress and in local Gond community politics which involved supporting Vikram Usendi the Gond BJP candidate in the assembly elections against the Halba Congress candidate But being political in these parts also means perforce keeping up with the Maoists In November 2013 soon after the assembly elections I visited Bastar as part of my research on counterinsurgency and democracy With me was a friend with ancestral roots in Narayanpur-Antagarh Badri mentioned that he was going to meet a Maoist leader and asked if we would like to come Since this was a rare opportunity for us we went along While the Maoists have often given access to embedded journalists and others they have been deeply resentful of my criticism of them If meeting a Maoist is a crime then dozens of journalists should be instantly arrested Can it be anyone’s case that there is a different law for journalists and a different one for scholars each of whom contributes to information and knowledge dissemination but in different ways On that same visit incidentally I also met a senior police officer Our meeting with the young Maoist who had a childlike face and giggled frequently lasted an hour or so We discussed the implications of the Raoghat mines of course because it would be impossible not to but also Godse versus Gandhi local gods and customs and his own life history I came away from that meeting with a sense of great sadness after having travelled through some of the most spectacular scenery I have ever seen — mist covered mountains blue-green with trees and clear pebbled streams Badri pointed out a special tree from which alone the Anga Deo or the log god can be fashioned This area deserves to be treated as a national biodiversity paradise rather than mined into a wasteland It has a unique expression of Indic religion unavailable anywhere else in the world described by Verrier Elwin as “a special and characteristic faith” Each hilltop houses a clan god and people come from faraway places in Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh to their clan festivals every few years People are immensely proud of their culture And yet the fake gram sabha certificates which the government has produced as evidence of popular consent all state in identical language that there is nothing of cultural or religious value in the area This is a Fifth Schedule area yet none of the safeguards that the Constitution affords in the form of PESA or the Forest Rights Act have been followed Part of the sadness I felt is that while people think the Maoists are saving the land they are hardly the answer The government however appears insistent on stopping all peaceful protest and violating every law to ensure the mines come up Ten years ago when the mines were still emerging the police made people deposit their bows and arrows in the thana and entire villages now have no means to defend themselves against wild animals There are ghost villages of women and children because all the men have been arrested Twenty-two CRPF camps have come up in the area financed by the Bhilai Steel Plant Ostensibly the mines will be used by the public sector but large private players are waiting in the wings Those who have not been arrested are being silenced through civic action programmes Sadly for democratic politics the post-1947 government has inherited among other things a colonial theory of incitement Unable to accept that people have a legitimate right to safeguard their lives they are always looking for conspirators to explain resistance In this case the aim is not simply to target me but to pre-emptively act against all democratic peaceful and lawful opposition to the Raoghat mines by raising the Maoist bogey It also helps the Chhattisgarh government to deflect attention from its deliberate refusal to act on the Supreme Court’s orders Schools are still occupied by security forces putting girl students at risk no one has been compensated for their houses being burnt and of course no one has been prosecuted for the killings and rapes the security forces and the Salwa Judum carried out The Chhattisgarh government has long tried to claim that our petition against the Salwa Judum in the SC has been filed at the behest of the Maoists It cannot accept that ordinary democratic-minded citizens who have witnessed or experienced firsthand the devastation brought about by the Salwa Judum might independently want justice My co-petitioners Ramachandra Guha and EAS Sarma can hardly be accused of being Maoist dupes The incitement and urban network theory can only go so far Till the day that our Constitution says that the profits of mining companies outweigh the right to life affected villagers will continue to fight and democratic people will continue to support them NANDINI SUNDAR The writer is professor of sociology at Delhi University and a co-petitioner in an ongoing PIL in the Supreme Court against the
